British Newspaper Archive launches mobile app

The British Newspaper Archive (BNA) has launched an app called Here & Then for iphones and ipads.

Since I have neither, I haven't been able to check it out, but it sounds interesting and fun.

The BNA says the app allows you to read stories from over 200 years of historical newspapers (it remains to be seen how often Irish titles will feature).

Users will:
  • Learn what happened on this day in history
  • Discover reports reflecting today’s news
  • Enjoy interesting and amusing snippets dating back to the 1700s

The app is free to download and to use.
